At the beginning of 2014 I had read some article about Kodi (XBMC) on the Raspberry Pi. When i try the distribution XBian, OpenELEC etc., they could not convince me - too many mistakes eg. not booting, no CEC and limitations. At the same time I came across the website XBMC for Raspberry Pi by Michael Gorven. It offers ready-Debian packages of Kodi for Raspbian Wheezy & Jessie. The XBMC Frodo version at this time ran on the Raspberry Pi B very stable and without problems. Meanwhile, there is also the Official Raspbian Jessie Repository Kodi in the current version.
The installation can be completed in a few steps:
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get update pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-cache madison kodi kodi | 2:17.1-1~jessie | http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ jessie/main armhf Packages
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get update pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get install kodi
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo usermod -a -G audio,video,input,dialout,plugdev,tty pi
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/99-input.rules SUBSYSTEM=="input", GROUP="input", MODE="0660" KERNEL=="tty[0-9]*", GROUP="tty", MODE="0660"
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo raspi-config pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo reboot
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ kodi
